So this is really interesting. Thank you for posting the ad. My C Melody came with a Holton mouthpiece. It is the color stated for C Mel so that cleared that up, I was wondering if it was really a C Mel mouthpiece. It was a one owner horn. The orig owners grand daughter was selling it. He was a professional player and must have really loved using

this mouthpiece on this horn as it is pretty worn. I've been looking for one in better shape. Now I'm not sure lol. This thing is heavy too. Pretty sure if I whipped it across the room and it hit someone just right it could knock them out.

That mouthpiece gets a record for the most used, WOW ! I’m sure that man could tell you what bakelight tasted like.

Can I talk you into posting on the Holton Serial number record.

Maybe add your pictures and story history here ?

Back in the sixties I worked in a scientific lab and handled powdered bakelite on a daily basis for four years. That was 60 years ago and I am still around.
